Even before the season, Antonio Conte seemed pretty upset at Chelsea Football club. After a brilliant debut season in England, Conte was expected to take Chelsea to new heights this year.
But his unhappiness with the club’s transfer policy made him irate as he could not land most of his top targets. Frustrated withe club’s decision makers, Conte publicly blasted his higher ups in an explosive press conference in the summer.
While his season started badly, Conte managed to steady the ship as Chelsea slowly started to climb up the table. But things have taken a turn for the worse lately, as Chelsea have lost two and drawn one in their last three matches.
Apparently many players in the squad have asked Conte to reduce the number of training sessions in order to prevent any injuries. With Kante, Luiz, Moses and Bakayoko all missing through injury, Conte is facing a crisis in his team.
The Italian is now unhappy that the players are complaining about his sessions in addition to his existing issues with the club hierarchy. All this is creating a potentially dangerous situation for Conte which is why many members of the Chelsea staff feel that he may soon lose his job.
Chelsea are known to be a ruthless club, and have never succumbed to showing compassion to their managers. The fact that Conte won the league and reached the FA Cup final last season will count for nothing if they feel that he is not up to the mark right now.
Let’s hope Conte turns it around as his loss would be a huge blow for the club and the Premier league as a whole.
